Four Contestants Are Sent Home

Four Contestants Are Sent Home
After America's vote was revealed on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, Carly Blaney, Emily James, Jessica Richens, Casey Askew, Teddy Coffey and Serge Onik were the three girls and three guys who received the fewest votes. In a dramatic, quadruple elimination at the end of the show, the judges – Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judge Christina Applegate – determined that Carly Blaney, Emily James, Teddy Coffey and Serge Onik would be sent home. Also on last night's show, the second of the four featured dance crews, Academy of Villains, performed live.

Next week, on Wednesday, Aug. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the competition intensifies when guest judge and Olympic Gold Medalist Tara Lipinski joins the judging panel, as the Top 10 finalists – Rudy Abreu, Casey Askew, Tanisha Belnap, Emilio Dosal, Zack Everhart, Jacque LeWarne, Jessica Richens, Valerie Rockey, Ricky Ubeda and Bridget Whitman – will be paired up with All-Star partners. The All-Stars include Stephen “tWitch” Boss (Season Four), Brandon Bryant (Season Five), Ryan DiLello (Season Six), Lauren Froderman (Season Seven), Jasmine Harper (Season Ten), Jenna Johnson (Season Ten), Kathryn McCormick (Season Six), Ade Obayomi (Season Five), Chehon Wespi Tschopp (Season Nine) and Amy Yakima (Season 10).

Christina Perri, whose song, “Jar of Hearts,” led to overnight success and a record deal after being featured on the show, is back to perform her new single, “Burning Gold,” from her “Head or Heart” album.
